Statement by the Prime Minister, Mr. William McMahon

It is with regret that I learnt of the death of Sir Roderick Miller.

Chairman and Managing Director of R. W. Miller (Holdings) Limited, Sir Roderick was one of Australia's leading businessmen.

Amongst other achievements Sir Roderick Miller was instrumental in revolutionising the handling of oil in the Australian coastal shipping trade.

He was an outstanding Australian.

Sir Roderick, a New South Wales rugby union representative, was a personal friend of mine. I extend my sincere sympathy to his widow.
